32nd Hospice Georgian Bay Fundraising Silent Auction 2017

Grey Heron Yarn Shop These “Thrum Mittens” have been hand knit in the traditional Canadian way by inserting wool fleece “thrums” into the mitten to create an extra layer of warmth. Traditional, Thrum Mittens were hand knit by coastal communities like our Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland regions to protect the fisherman’s hands from the frigid Atlantic waters. As part of our “Canada 150” yarn shop celebrations, these mittens have our specially designed label by Jelinek Cork made in cork on each of the mitten cuffs. The yarn and fleece come from a Nova Scotia hand yarn dyer “Fleece Artist” who crafts magnificent colours in each of their products. It is our pleasure to present these Thrum Mittens for the fundraising  silent auction  @ the 32nd Annual Ski & Snowshoe Day celebrated by Locations North in support of Hospice Georgian Triangle & The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.
